I was a frequent customer to Haymaker in West Seattle, but having recently moved the Eastlake location is much more accessible. The Eastlake location delivers the same experience and it was absolutely lovely. My party (me + 3) did the tasting special and we were not disappointed. The food was incredible. And our server was attentive and funny. Overall, just a great experience and I'll definitely be back! Highly recommend.
Awesome experience! Food was perfectly presented & cooked. Ordered burrata, oysters, peppers, and tagliatelle pasta. Sharing for two was just enough. Our server was very personable & loved his positive energy. The food runners and hosts were super helpful with all the tables too, which is great to see as it’s clear there is a solid team effort for good service. Honestly could not have had a more perfect experience, thank you Haymaker!
Consistent, safe, exceptional
Pasta was great. Prix fixe was pretty good, but dessert cake was dry. Nice outdoor space.
Great SRW offers, we enjoyed every dish. Generous portions and tasty
Overall very good experience. Good food and good service.
Many visits, always superb. Very safe healthy practices for Covid.
Had a great time with my wife for our anniversary. Lauren & Dodge took great care of us. They recommened the tasting menu, which was excellent, and both of them went out of their way to make it a special night. Would love to explore more of Brian Clevenger's concepts, and we'll come back to eat here again.
Consistently well thought out and plain good tasting food.
Great service and meal to ourselves (no one was in the restaurant). Thanks for the lovely experience.
Wonderful service, food, and drinks! Has a great neighborhood vibe that makes dining seem comfortable and fun again!
Did the chefs tasting menu. Food was solid and good value. Looking forward to going back.
Had another great meal at Haymaker with our server Lauren! I tried Mary's Chicken with collards and my partner had the grilled trout. Both were amazing although I would have liked a little more spice go my collard greens...seasoning goes a long way with me.
Overall great dinner and great wine/drinks to boot!
I went there for my anniversary and my husband and I had the chef's tasting menu. Absolutely delicious! Each plate we tasted was diverse in flavors, fresh, and colorful. The progression was very nice and the service was on point. Our drinks were very good and we even got a special treat because it was our anniversary. We will definitely we back for more.
Great time with friends and wonderful food and service.
Really cute place with nice fresh food. It was a little chilly inside but I think it’s due to air circulation for Covid.
As usual, it's our favorite place to dine for date night! Our hostess Jessica, Tomas, and Lauren are absolutely the best! Lauren was our server this past Friday with help from Tomas. We met our dear friends and decided to sit with them for a bit before they left.
Can't say anything bad about our experience at Haymaker East. We love the food and the changing menu. Would love to see some of the specialty pastas that we so loved when it was LeMesse.
On a quiet and not busy Tuesday night, it took a very long time to place a drink order. It took even longer to actually receive the drinks and place a dinner order. 2 out of the 3 people in our party were eventually served food and there was no explanation about the missing 3rd dinner (which was a very simple pasta dish). It was awkward and annoying. There were no apologies or updates. I've never experienced service that horrible. The food was pretty good, but not great and definitely not worth the wait. In the end, the person who appeared to be in charge came over with the check and told us that she didn't charge us for the pasta and she had an attitude about this as if we'd complained the whole time (which we didn't) and as if she was doing us a favor. I wouldn't go back to Haymaker Eastlake.
Was a good place to go for group - enough choices for everyone. It wasn’t as seafood centric as we thought it would be by the description. Overall, good place - probably better without the Covid restrictions. We’ll try it again.
We did the Chef's tasting menu. It was amazing. Highly recommend. Great service and team all around.
Always amazing food and service! Thanks to our wonderful waiter, Tomas and the chef. We got to try some new appetizers which were amazing! Always a wonderful experience.
Good dishes - fresh, delightful taste
Delicious curated menu. The Nashville hot chicken sandwich is not necessarily like what you would get in Nashville, but their take on it is still delicious. Great wines as well! The indoor seating during a warm evening included all the windows open, allowing for a nice breeze, which felt COVID safe.
We had a wonderful experience at Haymaker. We were there to celebrate a house closing. They had the windows wide open so it felt like we were outside on that beautiful summer evening which was great in our current social distancing environment. We chose the chef's tasting menu which was a great price for the quality of food that we received. They played 80's music (my favorite) and our server was fun and engaging. I have recomended it to several people since and will definitely be back.
Always love the Chef’s Tasting menu! Great value and pasta is always perfect:
Amazing food, great service, sunshine on our table until the sun went down on the horizon...what else could you ask for!?!
Very welcoming and good portion sizes. The Celery Gimlet was tasty!
Very unique menu with something for everyone. We'll plan on going back many more times to try everything.
If you have plenty of time it worhs!
Get the Chef's Tasting Menu - lots of food for the price, and includes some items that aren't on the menu. Delicious and fun!
Awesome. Very thoughtful about the customer
Amazing chef’s choice dinner to celebrate our anniversary!
They treated us to glasses of champagne for a toast!
And the service and safety/protocol measures were the best!
Thank you! ❤️
Always amazing! Had our favorite waiter Tomas and he was amazing as usual. We asked if they were bringing the tasting menu back. And were told on this visit that yes, it's coming back! Woohoo!
Haymaker has creative appetizers and homemade pastas that rotate frequently, along with a great wine list. What more could you ask for?
Exceptional food and great service. The Pork chop was tender and tasty.
Tomas and Lauren were great! It's one of our favorite restaurants, unfortunately they are changing their menu which is a little disappointing. Burgers etc. aren't necessary what I look for in an upscale restaurant. Disappointed in the name change and missing the tasting menu, which was amazing. We noticed a less mature clientele (after being closed for three months) and limited pasta offerings. The things that made LeMesse special is missing and has less bragging rights for out of town guests. Food was great nonetheless! Miss the feel of LeMesse!
Ordered what was supposed to be NY strip steak. Pretty sure it was skirt steak. Full of fat and gristle. At $38 should’ve been a higher quality cut. I probably only ate 1/3. Had higher hopes since Vendemmia is a favorite. The small plates were tasty.
Lauren was amazing and the food was great! Very aware of safety standards as well
I eat here at least once every two months. The food is excellent, with enough options and flexibility for my more restricted dining companions. The wine list is good with some decent deals. I love sitting at the counter but all the table sitting is nice too.
we had the tasting menu. four "courses" but had nine different dishes of food. all tasty. did not leave hungry at all. service was also warm, friendly, and just frequent enough.
